Mother’s Day is fast approaching! How are you celebrating this year? It doesn’t matter what you do or if you keep up the same traditions year after year. What is important is making Mom feel special.

As a senior living community in Powder Springs, Georgia, Silver Comet Village understands that the current health climate may impact your Mother’s Day plans. Fortunately, there are still ways that you can show the mother figure in your life that you appreciate her! To help you celebrate and spoil Mom, our team is sharing safe Mother’s Day ideas.

Beyond a Phone Call

For many of us, talking on the phone is a normal, everyday occurrence. It is a convenient way to chat and catch up, but it can also be so routine that it doesn’t capture the importance of Mother’s Day. 

Video call platforms such as Zoom, Skype, and FaceTime have been essential tools for most of us in recent times, but you may associate them with work or business – not a Mother’s Day celebration.

What if there was a way to spice up virtual connections and make them feel special? Oh wait, there is! Even though you may not be able to host all your friends and family for a Mother’s Day celebration in person, you most certainly can host them virtually.

Go beyond a phone call or standard video call and host a virtual Mother’s Day party with the whole family. Coordinate with your family members and friends ahead of time, plan games to play, have attendees make the same food before the party and share a meal during the call, or even pick out a movie and watch it together with Teleparty.

If getting the whole group together is not an option or you are looking for a more personal way to celebrate the mother figure in your life, set up a virtual call between just you and Mom. You can still implement games, movies, and food to make the occasion more special, but this way, you and your mother get to spend quality one on one time together.

Give the Gift of Meaningful Memories

No matter how far away the mother figure in your life is physically, you can still show her that you care by sending her a piece of home and a piece of your heart.

Craft the Perfect Care Package

Sending a care package is a great Mother’s Day idea that can be personalized just for her. For instance, if she lives out of town, include something from her favorite local shop or a snack from her favorite local eatery. Include personal care items and spend a virtual spa day together. Even if she lives near you, it is still an easy and meaningful way to show her that you appreciate her. 

Create Something She’ll Treasure for Years to Come

Another idea is to create a keepsake or photo box. Gather old photographs, notes, cards, and other sentimental items you have collected over the years and compile them into a box. When the mother figure in your life opens the box, she will be reminded of all the wonderful moments you have shared together. Not only will this help to stimulate her memories and keep them fresh in her mind, but it also gives the two of you the chance to reminisce together and will serve as a keepsake for many years to come.

Beyond a photo box, you can create personalized items that showcase photos and memories like coffee mugs, blankets, magnets, and more.

Showing the influential women in your life that you appreciate them is important on more than just Mother’s Day. Make sure to find little ways to celebrate and spoil the mother figure in your life throughout the year as well!
